• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

Haven’t followed the last few months closely but here’s my predictions

East
Celtics
Cavs
Wizards
Raptors
Bucks
Hornets
Heat
76ers

West
Warriors
Houston
Spurs
OKC
TWolves
Blazers
Clippers
Pelicans

Cavs in 7 over C’s
GS in 5 over Rockets

GS sweeps

Leonard gets MVP
Tatum for ROY

If everything for OKC clicks then they could finish 2nd, although 4th is a safe bet. I doubt we see them at their full potential (if it ever happens) until January at the earliest. The West is going to be fun to watch, though. At least until the DUBS shit on everyone in the playoffs.

West
GS (70+ wins)
Hou
SA
OKC
Minn (could be lower but Butler and Kat are studs)
Por (continuity will help them get to a good start)
Den (starting to be overrated)
LAC (could easily be Utah or no)

Nw division is stacked.

East
Was (continuity)
Bos
Cle (their peak is obviously highest but IT is missing significant time)
Mil (breakout giannis?)
Tor
Mia
Sub .500 teams.

Warriors gonna spank that ass

East finals won't be Cavs Celtics

Mvp- Steph
Roy- Ball
MIP- Russell
6th man- JR Smith
Dpoy- Draymond

My NBA predictions:

  • No one will seriously challenge the Cavs in the East. Given the drastic amount of changes to the roster, Boston will take a slight step back this season (but will rebound next season).
  • The best four teams in the NBA will be from the Western Conference
  • Joel Embiid will play 60+ games this season but Philly will still miss the playoffs
  • Minnesota will make the playoffs
  • Denver will make the playoffs
  • The Lonzo Ball show will not live up to the hype (both the good and the bad). He will have a solid, but unspectacular, rookie year.
  • Greg Popovich will emerge as the country's best, most trusted, and most bulletproof critic of Donald Trump
and most of all...
  • someone other than Golden State will win the NBA championship. I don't know who it will be, but in Golden State vs the field, I will take the field.

Hornets 8th in the east rinse repeat nobody cares

Would like for the Nuggs to be in the mix, it would be nice to see them play with some actual stakes. Do love me some Millsap

Yeah that's probably at least 6 months. Woof. Looks like it snapped right over the ankle. He was trying to scoot away too while the play continued.
